I love this!!! I could only love it more if it came in an actual tube like a real lipstick. I don't use it on my cheeks, so if you're interested in Illusive for that, please ignore this review. For anyone who loved and misses Aveda's original Orellana lipstick, this is REALLY close!! It's a totally neutral, semi-matte but moisturizing, deep not-quite-brown-or-purple but something in between that really works on my light skin without screaming "hello I'm lipstick!". It can be sheered out to a very lovely stain or piled on with a brush to make it darker and more dramatic (the latter of which I am not wont to do at my age, but it DOES work). Highly recommended for those who like deep neutrals, like the aforementioned Aveda Orellana and Chantecaille Willow. I just wish they'd put this in a tube!! The packaging is horrible. But the fantastic color makes it worth the trouble.

I never thought I would love this colour as much as I do - its become my go-to this winter for a hyper natural flush. I'm fair neutral (NC/NW 15-20) so don't be scared off by the dark pot - as with all lip2cheek products, you only need a tiny bit to get the look. And it layers beautifully under a lip balm or lipstick.
I've never been particularly loyal to any cosmetics brand, always on the look out for "the next best thing." But since I've discovered rms beauty, at least the lip2cheek colours, I haven't looked at anything else. It feels so weird but they just really work. And they are so incredibly pigmented that a single pot will last for ages.

Lovely! I bought this as my winter blush, and the color is so pretty for my olive skin and dark hair. After cleansing and moisturizing, I rub a little bit of this on each cheek and occasionally dab a little on my lips. I think it gives a very sexy, dewy glow to my face. Very pleased.

I love love love this lip2cheek in Illusive! I was actually a bit reluctant to buy it at first because I already have one in Rapture and so I wanted to have a soft colour for my lips. Anyways, long story short, I am so glad I ended up buying Illusive. It's great! Don't be afraid to think that it might be too purple for you, the colour is actually perfectly described as 'a matte burnt rose with a hint of plum'. What's so great about it is that, you can go from sheer to bold unlike your general lipsticks. It really enhances my natural lip colour, It's totally wearable during the day. In comparison to Rapture, I think Illusive is far more hydrating which is great so you do not need a lip balm prior to using it (although it is a +++ if you do). I really put my trust in Rosie-Marie, not only because she's a make up artist, but she really knows how to radiate one's natural beauty without even having your face to scream out loud that you're actually wearing a make-up. RMS beauty is the only brand that I have when it comes to lipstains and eyeshadows, they are so versatile and easy to apply. Yes, her make up doesn't stay forever on some people, but it's so worth it because you eliminate all of those unnecessary harmful ingredients and time you spend to get ready.
